Memorial Services for Murdered Students

Ad Feedback - JERUSALEM, Israel - On Thursday, Jewish communities around the world will participate in ceremonies marking the end of the seven-day mourning period (Shiv'ah) for the eight students killed at Jerusalem's Mercaz HaRav yeshiva (religious seminary) last week.

In Paris, Israeli President Shimon Peres will mark the occasion with student groups, including members of Bnei Akiva, the largest religious Zionist youth movement in the world, with branches in nearly 40 countries.

Some 500 Jewish Agency representatives worldwide helped local Jewish community centers, schools, universities and synagogues over the past week to plan the day's activities, which range from rallies to prayer meetings.

"We will bring word of this terrible attack to every corner of the world," said Jewish Agency Chairman Ze'ev Bielski.

The organization prepared on-line information kits about the Mercaz HaRav yeshiva, biographies of the boys who were killed, and photographs and video footage of the terror attack and its aftermath.
